Jacob Riis.

I love looking at these pictures.  I look at these kids and they are so close in age to my own two.  I can’t imagine what their day to day lives must have been like.  Squalor, work, no public playgrounds or parks yet.  My kids, looking at these images makes me want to go home and squeeze them very hard.

I have been in a black and white/history/old tymey type of mood.
